Eliza

French speaking
Eliza moved to Paris in 2009 to further her training as an actress specializing in clown, mime, acrobatics and physical theatre.

Eliza grew up in Melbourne, Australia surfing, sailing, running, swimming, and all-round being outdoors. As a youth she competed as a gymnast in Victoria and afterwards moved towards soccer, hockey and netball. Realizing to her dismay that ball sports were not her forte, she was drawn to long distance running, athletics and rowing.

It was the boot camp style fitness training that she received that she loved the most. She loves to motivate people to achieve their goals, improve their well being and overall fitness and health. She is passionate about fitness and health, currently also training as a drama therapist, a vegetarian herself, and is keen to share this passion with others through her boot camp classes!

Students can expect a group training program that focuses on a full body work out including cardio and strength training. The group atmosphere will accomodate those who need that extra motivation to work out, complimented with the great social aspect.

An actress to the core, you can be sure that Eliza’s classes will be well animated!


Eliza instructs the following:
  • Outdoor Bootcamp with a Yogic Twist - Tuileries, GRANDE LAWN
  • This will be predominantly a fitness-style class with some yoga moves included to increase its effectiveness.
    This class is for those who like to mix their yoga with a more intense style workout while being active outdoors.
    • If you are keen to shed unwanted weight and get fit and strong
    • If you enjoy being outside and not afraid to get a little dirty and muddy once in a while
    • If you like the feeling of the positive rush of endorphins through the body
    - this class is for you!!

    Its main focus is fat burning and toning of all muscle groups to make you feel lean and confident.

    You don't have to be super fit to participate - all levels welcome. This class is designed in such a way that can be adopted to each individual ability without affecting the group. If you are starting on your journey to better fitness or are already very sporty and want to increase your performance by cross training, this class will be equally beneficial in getting you to your goal.

    The class will be a mix of 3 types of activities:

    1) Bodyweight Resistance Training - Exercises that are designed to engage maximum number of muscles in one movement, and mimic your natural functional movement patterns and hence develop your strength and fitness that would be useful in improving your quality of life (as opposed to isolated gym equipment exercises that only work on a few muscles at a time and often make you work in superficial range of motion that is rarely utilised in your day-to-day life.)

    2) Yoga Postures and Sequences - Performed in between the resistance training moves to work the muscles in a static way (which increases blood flow to that particular muscle). By bringing more nutrient-rich oxygenated blood to the area, we will promote faster muscular development, moreover, the nature of most yoga moves brings a more balanced development to all the muscles trained during the workout.

    3) Cardiovascular Interval Training - designed to improve your heart-centered fitness as well as increase your body's fat burning capability during, and even after your workout. This will involve running, jumping, skipping, kick boxing and other fun activities

    To increase its effectiveness even further by keeping your muscles and joints supple, - the class will start and finish with a yoga warm up and cool down and deep guided relaxation (weather permitting) to help you regenerate and become stronger faster.
    This class is held in ENglish, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

  • Meditation Techniques and Practice - 60 minutes

  • The very purpose of our physical yoga practice is to prepare the mind for purposeful concentration. We move and stretch the body so that when we sit for meditation, we are able to be still and calm. The door to this state is our intention. The key to that door is our breath.

    In this class we will be exploring the different available meditation techniques ranging from Mantra Repetition, Mudra Hand Positions, Chakra Energy Stimulation, Guided Visualization, and Yoga Nidra / Rest. Each of these ancient practices are intimately connected to the conscious regulation of our inhales and exhales known as Pranayama.

    During the session, you will be invited to discover the power of focused group practice to be continued in your private meditation practice.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le but du yoga (physique) est de préparer le corps à rester tranquille pendant la méditation. Dans ce cours nous entrons à l'intérieur de nous mêmes en utilisant plusieurs techniques comme les Mantras, Mudras, Yoga Nidra, Visualisations Guidées et stimulation des chakras. Une grande partie du cours est consacré à la respiration. Comme on ne bouge pas beaucoup dans ce cours, prenez des chaussettes, un coussin si vous voulez et un tapis de yoga. Cours ouvert à tous.
